Promising three year-old filly Burning Bell made it back to back wins and pocketed another lucrative QTIS bonus when she scored at the Sunshine Coast making it 2 wins from 3 starts.
Burning Bell will now be given a let up before being stepped up into stakes company at her next start.
She will be targeted towards the Listed Denises Joy Stakes (1100m) at Scone on Saturday 14 May.
“It looks the ideal race to head towards now. There isn’t a lot of shorter races with black type for fillies during the Queensland winter so we will have a throw at the stumps at this,” said Grant Morgan from OnTrack.
“If she could run third it gets her some quick black type and will help sure up her residual value very early in her career.
“The Denises Joy is run at handicap conditions so that suits ideally. It wouldn’t be as attractive if it were run at set weights conditions.
“Hopefully she can sneak into the field. We think she is a progressive filly with plenty of potential,” said Morgan.
Burning Bell is prepared by Toby and Trent Edmonds, and was well ridden by Ryan Maloney despite the filly running out late when it appeared she caught site of the winning post, at what was her first run at the Sunshine Coast.
“She pulled up with some lacerations in behind too so perhaps they may of contributed to her waywardness during the final stages,” said Morgan
After just three starts, Burning Bell has banked gross prizemoney of $74,500, thanks in part to the wonderful QTIS bonuses which are particularly lucrative for fillies.
She looked a good thing beaten on debut at Ipswich, before demoralising a maiden field a the same track prior to her Sunshine Coast win.
